    Abstract   Background TRB3, a human homolog of Drosophila Tribbles, has been shown as a critical negative regulator of Akt (also known as protein kinase B), which is a key component in insulin signaling. In addition, TRB3 is another PPAR-target gene and functions as an important link...

    Genetic association studies are viewed as problematic and plagued by irreproducibility. Many associations have been reported for type 2 diabetes, but none have been confirmed in multiple samples and with comprehensive controls. We evaluated 16 published genetic associations to type 2 diabetes...

    Background: The peroxisome proliferator activated receptor-gamma ( PPARG) is a nuclear receptor that regulates adipocyte differentiation, insulin sensitivity and lipid metabolism, thus, it represents a good candidate gene for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Purpose and Method: We...
